new posts vs replying needs to be more clear
Right now , when you are in a channel, replying to a post vs starting a new post is too easily confused, leading to many posts that are meant to be "replies" to existing conversations.
Break replies into their own column, making it obvious when you are creating a post vs. replying to a post. Using simple mspaint and some cut-n-paste powers, this was rather trivial simply by consuming the massive dead space in the UX. See attached.

Suggest increasing the spacing on screen between the "bottom" of the scrollable posts and the "post input dialog box" at the very bottom. Multiple reinforcement methods including those suggested here would be great. This is a problem.
Another idea for this would be to hide the posting tools unless the user clicks "Create New Post" and then also make the reply buttons larger.
Absolutely agreed with this. You have my 1 vote, and my team of 10 also. We're very frustrated by this.
